After a journey that has lasted a decade, Europe's Rosetta spacecraft is now on its final approach to a comet.

The tiny probe is set to rendezvous on Wednesday with one of the strangest objects in the solar system.

The latest in a series of manoeuvres will bring Rosetta to within 100km of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

One of the scientists leading this European Space Agency (Esa) venture described it as "the sexiest, most fantastic mission ever".

Brief encounters
Throughout human history, comets lighting up the night sky have triggered fascination and fear but their speed and distance have made them difficult to investigate.

One theory is that they delivered water, carbon and other essential building-blocks for life to the early Earth.

You forgot that NASA watches Geckos having sex in space so it's hardly any surprise that they find this sexy. chuckle.gif

Yeah rocketing outwards at 20,000 mph through a 450F below zero void must be incredibly erotic?! and imo the sexy and fantastic they're really talking about has probably a lot more to do with the beautiful nubile telemonitorists sitting in NASA's control room and a lot less to do with their probes rendezvous with a comet?! especially when they all leap and jump and bounce up and down in collective joy while squealing and hugging each other in exuberant unison after another $ucce$$ful tax extortion mi$$ion (*=*)

Rosetta arrives at comet destination
6 August 2014

After a decade-long journey chasing its target, ESA’s Rosetta has today become the first spacecraft to rendezvous with a comet, opening a new chapter in Solar System exploration.

Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and Rosetta now lie 405 million kilometres from Earth, about half way between the orbits of Jupiter and Mars, rushing towards the inner Solar System at nearly 55 000 kilometres per hour.

The comet is in an elliptical 6.5-year orbit that takes it from beyond Jupiter at its furthest point, to between the orbits of Mars and Earth at its closest to the Sun. Rosetta will accompany it for over a year as they swing around the Sun and back out towards Jupiter again.

Hot as hell! scream.gif

Quote:“After ten years, five months and four days travelling towards our destination, looping around the Sun five times and clocking up 6.4 billion kilometres, we are delighted to announce finally ‘we are here’,” says Jean-Jacques Dordain, ESA’s Director General.
